Install Android 4.4 KitKat Cyanogenmod 11 on Galaxy Fit GT-S5670. After Google unveiled the latest Android 4.4 KitKat version for their newly launched Nexus 5, no other devices had this latest OS.
Day by day many developers rolled out official as well as un-official KitKat version for many devices. But as compared, more than officials the percentage of un-official updates was high.
The reasons for that may be the developers require much more time to prepare a stable and bug-free update than the unofficial ones. So before the release of an official update for a particular device its un-official ROM is revealed.
This way it becomes easy to experience the latest version especially for those who have no patience to wait for the officials to release. As soon as Google releases the source code for any particular device, developers all over the world immediately start development on it.
Thus many Custom ROMs are rolled out one after another every year. But the only drawback for these un-officials is they may have untested bugs and issues. These bugs may vary from device to device.
Well, we can also say that the latest official updates are released only for flagship devices. Hence, the rest users of low-end devices are forced to rely on the poor older versions. They can’t experience the newly launched versions on their devices.
The main reason behind this is the hardware compatibility of these phones. It is much less and is not capable to run the new blazing features. To fix this, the Cyanogenmod team has fortunately launched the latest OS for low-end devices.
But due to hardware limitations, there can be many bugs and issues in these un-official updates. In this article, we have come up with the latest Android KitKat flavored ROM, especially for Samsung Galaxy Fit.
The developers of Galaxy Fit, the most famous low-end device after Ace has stopped releasing further updates for the same. The last official update for this handset was the Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Unfortunately, Samsung never released any further updates.
The last official update that was released for Fit was Android 2.3 Gingerbread. After that, no more official updates were rolled for the same. Thanks to the XDA team who always made it possible for the fit users to experience the new versions.
Finally keeping all the rumors behind, the most awaited Android 4.4 KitKat ROM is here for Fit which can be updated through the latest Cyanogenmod 11 build. You can now enjoy all the latest KitKat flavored features.
